Afinia L901 Digital Color Label Press featuring Memjet Technology
The Afinia L901 Memjet-powered color label press and label printer is designed for production environments where speed and print quality are equally important. With its 1600dpi print resolution and 12-inches-per second print speed, the Afinia L901 is up to the task. Prints on an 8.5" wide web.
The L901 is also designed for inline operations. That is, it's meant to be paired with a complementary label finishing system (such as the Afinia DLP-2100), where you are printing and then laminating, die cutting, slitting, removing the matrix and rewinding the finished labels onto finished rolls in a single process.
The Afinia L901 keeps ink costs among the lowest in the industry and uses five high capacity (250ml) ink tanks. If you're currently using a desktop inkjet-based color label printer, you'll likely find that the Afinia L901 is significantly less expensive to operate especially if you print more than 5,000 labels per month. We will be happy to run a label cost analysis upon request.
How does the L901 compare to L801?
The L901 Memjet printhead has a slightly longer lifetime as the L801, which also saves you money. It can be serviced inline when you are printing, so servicing the printhead is much easier and can be done on the fly. This is the main difference between the L801 and the L901. Since the printhead is serviced inline, you can run large jobs without having to cut the web, like on the L801, therefore saving you more time when running large jobs.
The Afinia L901 is a versatile label printer that is right at home in both small and large production environments. For example, here are three different L901 configurations to consider:
1. Print and Apply Labels (Afinia L901 Base Unit Only) Use the Afinia L901 base unit on its own to print and apply up to 8.5-inch-wide labels and barcodes.
2. Roll-to-Roll Printing (Requires the Afinia L901 attached to an external Rewinder and Unwinder) With an external unwinder and rewinder combination (both sold separately), the Afinia L901 becomes a digital label press that prints from one roll to another. Plus, since the unwinder is external, you can use large media rolls up to 24" OD (5,000 feet). In contrast, the L801 has an internal unwinder that can only hold up to 500 feet of material or 8" OD roll.
3. Inline with Label Finishing System (Such as Afinia DLP-2100) Designed for inline operation, the Afinia L901 integrates with digital label finishing systems (sold separately). Once your system is set up, the printed labels emerge from the printer and are run through the label finishing system for cutting, slitting, and lamination before being rewound.
The Afinia L901 works with both continuous label rolls and pre-die cut label rolls, depending on the accessories you'll be using with the printer. Labels are available made from paper, polyester, polypropylene, and other materials.
The Afinia L901 is an excellent high resolution, high speed, Memjet-powered digital label printer for low cost, high volume label production. If you print 5,000 or more labels each month, the Afinia L901 could save you a lot of money each month in ink alone.
